Review

"A compelling read" More!

From the Inside Flap

Geri Halliwell has been written about more than almost any other pop artist. But how much of it is true? This glorious mix of over 100 exclusive photographs and an honest and heartfelt text was one of the biggest publishing events of 2002. Now, in this new mass-market format, Just for the Record will do it all over again in 2003.

With over 70,000 words of text, Geri?s story is revealing, frank, brutally honest and, at times, shocking. The book reveals the real story of her life over the last five years. But it is Geri?s telling of her personal battle to overcome the eating disorders that have plagued her since childhood which really makes her book stand apart. There has never been a celebrity book like it when it comes to explaining the stark reality of weight obsession.

Ok, I got this book, and I am in love with it. First of all,I loved "If Only", which was her first book. But, it was story that never got finished. She leaves the first one with you wondering if her solo career is gonna make it, and this one picks up where she left off, and shows her spunky greatness. This book, along with the great pictures is very good. Anything and everything is shown about her life. This is a book that really makes you wanna change and be a better person. Going from 1998 to 2002 shows all of her triumphs and struggles. Anorexia, singles not getting number one, and break ups take up a major part of the book. But also, it shows her awards, loves , and performances, that make you feel like you are right there. READ THIS BOOK. The reading itself is good, but also, there are hundreds of pictures of her in the book that show her from then to now. If you have any intrest in this woman,you'd better buy this book.

This book pics up right where If Only left off. This book is an excellent read, which holds your interest and it has amazing full page pictures of Geri. I would recommend reading If Only first because "just for the record" is a continuation of it. These books are great reads even if you aren't a fan of Geri's music because she has gone through so much in her life, and it is a very inspirational book with a positive message. This book is also a ,must have for any Geri fan. Even if you don't like to read, the pictures are amazing and there are many of them.

I have to admit I only bought this book because the Spice Girls were getting back together and thought it would be cool. I'm not much of a reader but, this book kept me entertained, I read the whole book in one day, "If Only" should be read first but really it doesn't need to be, this book portrays even more in depth how and why Geri left the group when she did and she writes about her struggles with what she wanted to do after that decision, she also explaines her troubles with eating disorders and her passion for yoga, a great read, even if you aren't a fan!

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Reine des Coeurs VINE VOICE on January 7, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Of all the Spice Girls, Ginger was always the one I liked the best. After she left, I was one of the first to buy Geri's CD (Schizophrenic)in the US; I subsequently bought the other as well (Scream If You Wanna Go Faster). As her fans will attest to, she grows with every endeavor.
Her diary/photojournal is full of personal anecdotes, recollections of encounters and most significantly, pain. It's this particular aspect that has always linked me to her. She came from a working class background and had to fight for both success and respect. She's battled with many emotions (not to mention the constant scrutiny of the press, which can't be helpful to anyone who's conquered an eating disorder) and makes no bones about how hard it's been, but how lucky she is to be where she is.
Nothing's been easy for her, she relates, and nothing ever will be without hard work and determination. That's what keeps me a fan - her down-to-earthness. Cheers, Geri!!

Some amazing pictures of Geri are featured in this book. She takes you on a ride from the Spice Girls until now. She finally speaks in more detail about leaving the group. It is nice to see her looking so happy.

I have always been a fan of autobiographies and this book certainly delivers. I was thinking it might not be as good as all that. I mean come on, yes I was a fan of the spice girls, but so was every pre teen girl.

But I was surprised to find out actually quite a lot. Geri is very open about her battles with anorexia and her trials with the paparazzi.

She is also an amazing person having done work for the UN, speaking about birth control and also performing for the troops.

It was a smart move for her to write this book and also a very honest one as well. She has been through a lot and you see her struggle through it all. It is very inspiring to know what she has been through and it makes you realize that celebrity is not always as perfect as it seems.

What a waste of time! Although I was certainly not expecting an award winning narrative, I was at least hoping to be entretained..... I certainly wasn't!
This book is dull, repetitive and childish. I think the people who liked it were hard core Geri Halliwell fans (obviously biased)
I was hoping the autor would share : A) how she overcame her bulimia and B) reveal the truth about what really went on while she was a member of the Spice Girls; instead, she blabs and blabs about being friends with George Michael and Robbie Williams ...please!!!!
